    Question: pH & coco coir

    I'm going to do a grow in coco coir and I was getting ready to flush the coir and get it pH'd properly.

    I intended to use pH7.0 water, but some of the things I have read here today are saying the pH for the coir should be 5.7. Can someone who has grown in coir please tell me what the proper pH should be?

    Thank you!!!!

    I think its supposed to be between soil and hydro so around like 6.5 or so? I am not 100% sure - Stinky where are you?????

    Coco is pH neutral (GH states on website), and I have treated as such. I keep my mothers in Coco and water with pH 6.5 water, has worked perfectly for close to a year. You will love Coco, its da bomb................When you hydrate your new Coco make sure you rinse very well. Most state they are already rinsed, but I like to give a thorough one myself just to make sure all the salts and whatever are out of it.

    Now that you are entering the Coco world, I will bet you that will will never even consider dirt farmin again...........trust me.......

    You might wanna "goggle" Coco Coir and have a browse around some other sites that have guys growin in Coco. Thats what I did a while back. You'll find all kinds of tips/tricks, do's-dont's.....etc But, all in all, its pretty foolproof stuff.

    Perfect medium for a drip setup (in my opinion), or you can handwater and achieve excellent results as well. Is a member here Blue Bear I think is name, check his posts and look for his Coco log.

    1. hydrate
    2. rinse
    3. and ready, set, growwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!!!

    Let me know how things turn out with your grow.

    best of luck

    If you cannot smoke it or eat it, why grow it ?
